Survey results on public support for trade standards

A survey commissioned by the Food Ethics Council, Eating Better and Hubbub shows that two-thirds (66%) of the UK public agree that meat and dairy imports should be at least as high quality as those produced in the UK. In contrast, a mere 3% of respondents said that the UK should import meat and dairy regardless of its quality.

The Yonder (formerly Populus) poll released on the 3rd November 2020 interviewed a representative sample of 2,095 people in the UK. Respondents were asked about a range of questions relating to eating meat and dairy, livestock production and trade.
